    Yuth,

    Your Maxpower is a beauty. Mine is the black one with the blue dots, like your old one.

    Do you know if they are the same racquet, just with different paint jobs? They certainly look like the same mold, but could be made of different materials or have very dissimilar specs.

    The only information on mine is the recommended string tension and the composition, which is fiberglass and graphite. And the 80s-tennis website says it was played at one time by Steffi Graf.

    Dunlop had a whole line of racquets that were made in West Germany in 70's and 80's.

    dunlop and donnay only made great stuff back then, wilson made crap and great stuff. Prince stuck to high end; with no pro-sumer models. Head was high end performance, but for everyone.
    it's an egghead racquet made it europe, like any european model with that body type, I am tempted to take a few strokes and find out how she feels...hope her stings aren't loose.

    Really good in hand. I can make a heavy passing shot when hit with this stick.

    :) The most interesting is about serving. I can make a definite serve with this racquet.
